Myself and fellow co-host, Trisha Lewis, have been brainstorming what it is to ‘brainstorm’ as well as to ‘network’ in order to get the content just right for our forthcoming MAKE IT REAL networking events (next one is 10 November). We’ve discussed prompts, themes, pain points and more excitingly – timings!!
‘Timings!’ I hear you say. ‘Exciting, really?’
Well, yes, when you consider the Zoom networking and communication world we now live in ‘time’ is incredibly important! So, I did some research. Well, Wikipedia did… ‘Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in an apparently irreversible succession from the past, through the present, into the future.’
What is clear in this ‘new normal’ is that we don’t need to travel further than the kitchen table. It is no longer necessary to drive to a venue to meet up with small business owners in your local area. You can now, at the click of your mouse, be transported anywhere in the world to meet anybody! I once popped up on a Zoom call with a man known as America’s Philosopher – but that’s a story for another day.
‘Diverse fields such as business, industry, sports, the Sciences and the performing arts all incorporate some notion of time into their measuring systems.’
We all define our lives by time. We divide our existence into measurable chunks; years, days, hours etc. Time is important. We need balance in our lives and so we need to appropriate time to what is important; loved ones, leisure, business. Oh, and sleep. So, think about how you spend your time, those valuable minutes, precious seconds. They shouldn’t be wasted or taken for granted. Sorry, I digress. What I am trying to say is…
Where in the world are you?
There will be two networking sessions on the same day, the 2nd Tuesday of the month. The first at 1pm which will suit our European and Asian friends and the second at 7.30pm to take our USA buddies into consideration. Exciting, see! Of course, you guy’s in the UK can make the decision of when to join us based on what you love most- your business or loved ones!
